Seeing Stored Values in the Locals Window

To view stored values in the Locals window

  • In the Locals For list, choose the program or procedure.

You can drill down into arrays or objects by clicking the plus (+) beside the array or object name in the Locals and Watch windows. When you drill down, you can see the values of all the elements in the arrays and all the property settings in objects.

You can even change the values in variables, array elements, and properties in the Locals and Watch windows by selecting the variable, array element, or property, clicking in the Value column, and typing a new value.

Seeing Stored Values in the Watch Window

You can see stored values in the Watch window. The value and type of the expression appears in the Watch window list. Values that have changed are displayed in red in the Watch window.
